It turns out Heidi Klum might actually have coronavirus after all. She’s been absent from tapings of AGT this week, due to what sources were calling a “common cold.” However, the supermodel has now updated fans on her Instagram account.
“Like many of you, I also have been sick all week and, unfortunately, my husband who returned from his tour a couple of days ago is also feeling ill,” Klum wrote. “To be safe, we are staying apart until we get the results of our Coronavirus tests (that we were finally able to get today) back.”
Klum, 46, who married Kaulitz, 30, last year, also posted a clip of the couple kissing through a glass window as a result of current circumstances.
“We don’t want to spread germs and risk others getting sicker… even each other!” Klum wrote. “As much as I want to embrace him and kiss him, it is more important to do the right thing and not spread further.”
She continued, “These are strange times… but in these moments, you remember what’s really important- the people you love and keeping them safe. Social distancing is what we all need to do right now to be responsible citizens of the world. We are all in this together and it is up to us to protect our loved ones, and our neighbors and our communities.”
Heidi Klum's husband Tom Kaulitz went shopping for groceries in LA with his twin brother Bill with both wearing a face mask and gloves.
The outing came as Bill Kaulitz revealed Tom has tested negative for the coronavirus.
Heidi, 46, fell ill last week causing the model to miss a taping of America's Got Talent on which she's a judge.
Heidi Klum‘s husband has tested negative for coronavirus, though the supermodel’s results are still pending.
The 46-year-old “Project Runway” alum revealed on Saturday that both she and Tom Kaulitz were “staying apart” from each other after both feeling ill.
“Like many of you, I also have been sick all week and, unfortunately, my husband who returned from his tour a couple of days ago is also feeling ill,” Klum wrote on Instagram. “To be safe, we are staying apart until we get the results of our Coronavirus tests (that we were finally able to get today) back.”
A few days later, Klum updated her fans on Kaulitz’s results, announcing that he, fortunately, hadn’t come down with COVID-19.
“Tom is ok, his came back negative,” Klum responded in the comment section of a “get well soon” cartoon. “I get my results on Thursday.”
Heidi Klum rarely holds back on social media, posting intimate moments with husband Tom Kaulitz alongside the occasional undressed pic. But when it comes to her four children, she’s much more guarded, rarely showing their faces and shooting them primarily from behind. On Sunday, however, she made an exception — thanks, no doubt, to the fact that her brood is all decked out in protective face masks while self-isolating amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The supermodel’s children with ex-husband Seal — eldest daughter Leni, 15, is the biological child of Italian businessman Flavio Briatore, but was raised by Klum and the “Crazy” singer — made a rare appearance on their mother’s Instagram page. Along with Leni, sons Henry, 14, and Johan, 13, posed with Klum, as did youngest daughter Lou, 10. Wearing a black cloth mask, new husband Kaulitz joined the group and the family’s two dogs.
Though she has returned to America's Got Talent as a judge, Heidi Klum will be missing from some episodes when season 15 airs this summer.
In March, the model, 46, fell ill on set in Pasadena, California, and did not return to film episodes of the auditions round. Thus, Klum will partially be absent and guest judge Eric Stonestreet, who starred in Modern Family with new judge Sofia Vergara, will temporarily sub in.
Klum, who ultimately tested negative for the coronavirus, tells PEOPLE that it took a "really long time" before she was able to learn her diagnosis.
"If you reverse back in time, you knew that there was something, but we were filming every day with people and an audience. There was no social distancing, no one knew too much about this," she recalls of filming before stay-at-home guidelines were implemented.
"When I fell ill, it was on March 10. I was experiencing fever and sore throat, so I told production and immediately the medic did my vitals and said, 'Yes, you have a fever,' and then I was dismissed," Klum says.
"It felt strange to leave, but that was the right thing to do," she adds. "I told them how I was feeling. They looked at me, checked me out and said, 'Yeah, go home.' Then I was asked to get tested ASAP so that I could go back to work because we didn't know that this was all unfolding the way it did. They were like, 'Okay, get tested as fast as you can.' "
However, obtaining a coronavirus test was not as easy as Klum had thought. "I tried and I went on the search for the test. I was unaware that there were no tests anywhere. I was just asking everyone because we were told that there are tests for everyone," she says.
"That wasn't really the case, so that took a really long time. Obviously, they were all nervous there too," she says of the AGT team. "We were just all learning things every day and it took a really long time until I could tell people that I was negative."
